Property description

Welcome to Buck's Cabin - a wonderfully remodeled and beautifully decorated home nestled in the pines. The perfect destination for year round fun in the Sierras or a quiet weekend getaway. You will enjoy the warmth and comfort of the European influenced decor. Reclaimed barn wood floors and ceilings, cedar beams, wainscoting and hand plastered walls create a distinctive ambiance to the cabin. Every detail was personally designed from custom cabinetry and furniture to artwork and collectibles. There is nothing 'typical' about this cabin.

The beds are wonderful 'European Sleepworks' mattresses with high end linens and down comforters. The kitchen is completely new with every convenience for preparing a lovely meal. There is a good sized deck with teak furniture and a top of the line gas BBQ.

The cabin is one story, located on a level street with a level driveway offering ease of access.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family of three from Marin County who have been avid skiers in Tahoe for years. We recently discovered the incredible beauty of Summer and Fall in Tahoe and now love it equally all year.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We appreciate the quick arrival time from the Bay Area to the first Truckee exit. Take a left at Northwoods and you are there. The amenities of Tahoe Donner were a big plus and the community there is wonderful. At any time of year...there is always something going on in Tahoe.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We looked for several years for a home we could make our own in Tahoe. This little gem provided the bones for a makeover and just the right size for inviting friends but not being overwhelmed with a large space. We love the trees that surround us and the sunny deck in Summer. We wanted a level driveway for Winter and a two car garage. Voila!
